Rippin' at the Greek
Grate first set. The Jackie has some nice jamming. Fadeaway sounds very menacing as usual. The Rooster steals the show though. Phil and the Boys lay down a huge groove and Matt Kelley on the harp just blows it up. Jerry takes a HUGE turn for his second solo; this combined with the Matt Kelley on the harp leads to an amazing blues groove. And Bobby's 84 vocals are awesome. Nice Jed with a huge crescendo by Jerry. Down the Line is always fun. RXR Blues has some huge solos by Jerry and some energetic vocals. LLR is very nice. I can do without Dont Cheese Me In.
Second set begins with Help>Slip>Franklins,and its a sicko version, very fast with a ridiculous Slipknot! by Jerry and energetic Franklins. The Estimated>Eyes, however is magic. Especially the Eyes. Very nice in verse solos by Jerry and the jam going into Drumz is transcendental. The back half of this show is just perfect. A compact, but smokin Truckin' with Jerry really coming through on the "Get back truckin on" line. Into a top version of Wharf Rat. Jerry really sings his guts out on this one and there are long searing solos present. Super!! Into GDTRFB and its a ripping version!! Very nice runs by Jerry. OMSN is amazing as usual. Bobby is all over this one, especially with the "Cmon Ron" line. Mean beat by Mickey and Billy.
All in all a real ripper.

Recording is TOO fast
I would like to have evaluated this show, but I was just listening to the H-S-F and for sure this recording is too fast- it is a shame, as I wanted to evaluate it, and the media player I have here does not have the speed adjustment- Does anyone else think this is the case here?

I've had this tape for over 20 yrs. and I'm elated to find it here! The jams flow beautifully into one another, especially the Second set! I think the sound epitomitizes the laid back, relaxed, psychedelic setting, that the bay area is known for.

"COME ON WEIR!"
Wait until a good audience gets posted then go for it! The second set was just about my first ever tape. I still have it 20 years later. It just has tbe best vibe . . . they kind of slowly and quiety drift into a fast version of Help. I love it. Spacy Help->Slip. Franklin's, Estimated, Eyes, Drums, Space and Wharf Rat are flat out awesome. Jerry's transitional licks from Estimated into Eyes - one of my all-time favorite moments. Pure bliss.

This was an awesome show...I guess you had to be there...especially the second set. It NEVER rains in Berkeley in July, but when the boys were moving into Franklin's Tower from Slipknot, a cloud came over and the softest rain started to fall ("roll away, the dew..."), as we all looked aloft in wonder. AND, if that weren't enough, when Franklin's ended, so did the rain, with a rainbow breaking out across the top of the Greek. I kid you not...we were all in awe. (How did they do that?) Then into blazing versions of Estimated Prophet and Eyes. Don't know about the quality of this source, but it was a magic night there folks...

Very Good sound
I disagree with the previous reviewer's comment on energy- was there any show in 1984 0r 85 that doesn't have Garcia sounding like the vocals are distant? And, how many energetic shows were there prior to 1987 after 1983? Jerry's weight was becoming an issue, and he ws tired iin those years and most of the vocals therefoe suck. It is plain and simple- but lets be honest- the jamming is the best in the dead's history.
I did not see my first show until 3-26-87, but from what I hear in this tape- I say go for it! Help slip is the highlight but the quality of sound is better than most I have downbloaded form this year.
PS. Go check out 3-26-87, there is a very very juicey sbd here fo that show- very kind.

This was the least energetic show I ever saw. I think everyone, including the band, stayed up all night after the Full Moon Friday the 13th Dark star the night before. There was no dancing down front!!! When they finally got a good jam going in the second set it started sprinkling and extinguished the small spark that was there.
Bob missed every transition in Help->Slip->Franklins and Jerry was glaring at him.
I will listen to the tape and see if it was any better than it was live but I doubt it.
